 A new bill proposed in the Illinois legislature looks to completely wipe out any form of anonymity on the internet by requiring that the operators of basically any website on the entire internet take down any comment that isn't attached to an IP, address, and real name-verified poster.

    Too many nutjobs out there to give up your privacy.

    It figures that Illinois would be the first to try it.

    There's nothing those libs love more than massive, centralized, domineering, total government control of everything.

    They have to make sure you're not saying anything they disagree with and find some way to punish you if you do.

          Youtube is constantly asking me to use my real name, and they give me no option to say no, except to remind me later. They'll just have to keep reminding me forever, cause I say NO NO NO.

              One thing for sure it wouid cut out a lot of cowards who won't say something to someone's face that they would say in cyberspace and wouldn't want posted in the local newspaper with their picture.  If you can't say it to someone's face with the same bravity, then you are a coward hiding behind a computer.

                  rdgrnr,

                  Illinois is a blue state because of Chicago and Cook County. The rest of the state isn't like that except for university towns. But the politicians know that Cook County is all they need to win state elections.

                  BobP,

                  So this would only apply to Illinois residents? How would that work? This sounds borderline like China.

                  This would also seem to hint that the next step would be onlye-mail addresses of first initial and last name, which is considered a security no no unless it's a compnay e-mail that requires it.

                  In a kind of related sense, thre news reported the other night that there is a proposal that all 2014 and later cars would have a black box.

                  "This is DHS. We noticed that you were listening to Alex Jones while you were driving today. We need you to come in and talk to us."

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  Lep

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                              The useful idiots would be all for it naturally cuz all they ever do is recite the government line like parrots anyway cuz they can't think for themselves and they're bought and paid for anyway.

                              In fact, they'd be the ones informing on people who think for themselves, demand their rights and refuse to do what they're told.
